Wrestlingnewssource.com says: Sting revealed on his newly released “Into The Light” documentary that he lost to Triple H at WrestleMania 31 earlier this year because it is “the right thing to do” in your last match.
This mindset is a harp back to an old school mentally that you should put your opponent over in the way to go out in your last match.
Throughout the documentary, Sting says that he thinks WrestleMania is his last wrestling match. His deal since recording this footage has clearly been restructured, as he faced Seth Rollins at the Night of Champions event this year.
The plan was to have Sting wrestle a bit more but he suffered a serious injury in his WWE World Heavyweight Championship bout with Rollins. Now it is still uncertain if he will return.
Paul Heyman recently made an appearance on SI Media podcast, one of the key highlights was him being asked about CM Punk possibly returning to WWE:
“As of right now, ain’t no way he’s ever going back. I don’t know if I can make that same statement in the future. I know his mindset is there’s absolutely no way. As for his mindset where he is in his journey, I think every moment he takes a breath is one moment closer to his debut. I think the only thing that he sees in his mind right now, 24/7 he is envisioning the moment they lock that Octagon and the referee says ‘fight’.”
Punk was at first scheduled to fight in November however that has since been pushed 6-9 months due to an injury Punk sustained in training. No word yet on who his opponent will be as of yet.
